The Covenant With Many

Recently I was reading the enemy's playbook. Like in football, Satan and his cohorts have a playbook for getting their agenda "into the endzone" to "score." Do some reading on the "New Age" to see the playbook. It can be tedious reading because everything is twisted and warped to fit proclamations from the father of lies, but it can be instructive to see what it is they have planned.

This brings us to Daniel 9:27, which is (from the septuagint):

27 And one week shall establish the covenant with many: and in the midst of the week my sacrifice and drink-offering shall be taken away: and on the temple shall be the abomination of desolations; and at the end of time an end shall be put to the desolation.

Notice what it does'nt say. It does'nt say the anti-christ confirms a covenant with many. It does'nt say the anti-christ will confirm a covenant with "one nation" (Israel). It says a covenant with many. Do you ever wonder at how men can turn a language on its head? How, pray tell, does "many" = one nation (Israel)? Perhaps men need to invest in a dictionary?

This brings me to the plan that the enemy has outlined in his servant's writings. It appears that the plan loosely follows this framework:

1. Planned economic collapse will be the trigger for the appearance of anti-christ. Any who doubted in the past should doubt no longer. Makes perfect sense does'nt it? Bring people to their knees economically, feed them a never ending diet of bad news, depression, and fear so when the man of sin shows up and says "I can make things good again" people stampede to take his handouts. The Lord has shown me the working out of this part of the plan. The news media is especially revealing. Since they are a propaganda arm of the satanic elite, they could spin everything positively...but they are not....why not? Why not spin the news positively? Because thats not the plan. The plan is for the hounds to drive you to the hunter. The hounds are those who serve this world and its master: Satan. The hunter is the rider of the white horse, with a bow in his hand..Rev 6. Think of all the symbology attached to that idea of a rider of a white horse...knight in shining armor...come to save the day..If everything is nice and normal for you, there's no psycological need for anyone to save the day. Hounds driving you to the hunter..remember that one.

2. They have a "day of declaration" planned when the man of sin will reveal himself to the world as some kind of "world teacher" on TV and through some kind of spiritual means. This day of declaration will be in accordance with the working of Satan's power, reaching out to the entire world at once. As I read about this day of declaration, to the entire world at the same time, immediately I thought of Daniel 9:27.....And one week shall establish the covenant with many. Let those words "covenant with many" really sink in. Would a "coming out party" to the entire world where this man tells them how he can "help" qualify as a "covenant with many?" You bet it would. Realize this as well, those who are sold on this idea that people will know the anti-christ when he signs a peace treaty with one nation...Israel...will say to themselves, "nope, this guy speaking to the entire world at once isn't the man of sin. First he has to sign a "peace treaty" with Israel." Deception, deception, deception. How do magicians work? They distract your eyes away from where the "magic" is really taking place...

Along these same lines, think about this. Today's so called prophesy scholars tell you that the rider on the white horse comes riding out with a bow, but no arrows. I guess they just stop reading there with that assumption under their belt and say "he's a man of peace!" See, no arrows!

Rev 6:1 1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

So, arrows or not, what does the bible say? He goes forth CONQUERING, yet todays so called prophesy experts tell you he goes forth making peace deals. It's right there in plain english, greek and hebrew. This guy shall destroy wonderfully:

Daniel 8:24 "His power will be mighty, but not by his own
... And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and

Notice it does not say "he shall write peace deals wonderfully." It says he shall destroy wonderfully. With all that said, could the anti-christ write up a peace deal with Israel, and/or other nations in the world? Sure he could, but thats NOT what Daniel 9:27 says. Anyone who disagrees with this needs idea needs to first prove how the word "many" now all of the sudden means "one."

We must read the bible for what it says, not what men tell us it means. Read it for yourself. A covenant with MANY will be made....thats what the bible says and that is what you should look for. Of course, if we are not here.....that might be kind of difficult.

As time becomes shorter, I have been pleading with the Lord to tell me if I am off base with any of this. I do think it would be good to know if we need to stock up on food supplies, because famine is coming, or whether we should be planning an escape to the mountains, because death is coming. So far, not an inkling from Him to do anything like this. As I've said in the past, it's probably a good idea to do some small preparations for small disturbances, but should'nt we hear from our God if we are to prepare to slug it out in the tribulation? Many will enter the tribulation, some will not.

The Dow Jones just hit 6,700. The "day of declaration" that anti-christ wants to make is planned for the time when the stock markets collapse. How far off do you think that is? When you read the new age stuff about what they are planning, they go on for pages and pages explaining to people how they don't know exactly when the man of sin will "come out of the closet." They need pages to explain something that takes 2 words in the bible...."the Restrainer." They talk about "the right energies have to be flowing blah blah blah blah" when the truth is, Satan is staring at a rod of iron in his way, also known as the power of our God. When our God says "go ahead," then, and only then, can Satan do his thing.

The stock market could be close to bottoming out. It may go down to somewhere in the 4,000 range, then its very possible we could get another (very short lived) barn burner of a stock market rally. Either way it goes (rally then collapse or straight into collapse), chances are, eventually here in the near term its going to collapse. Why collapse? There's no support to keep it up. Take all the support beams out of your roof and see what happens to it, eventually the thing is coming down. From what I gather, that has been the plan all along.

Remember the story of Noah. Because of the flood, he and his family went into the ark. Lot was escorted out of Sodom by angels before a single burning ember ever fell. Luke 21:36 promises an escape from all that's about to happen. Rev 3:10 tells us that some will be kept on the trial/test coming on the entire world. There are no idle words in the bible. Every word written means something specific. When we look back at the history of the world, we will say "Yep, it happened just like the days of Noah and Lot....exactly like that." and "yep, there was an escape from all, just exactly like the bible said there was." That's not my opionion, that's fact derived from the word of the Almighty God. My life has been an experience of seeing the word of God verified over and over and over again. It has been an experience of prayers answered, one after another after another. I have lost count of all the HUGE things the Lord has done for me.

What stands out to me today is this: the word of God is true. He has proven himself to me. He has proven to me that his word is what he said it was: the word of GOD. The wisdom in it is flawless, and every prophesy will come to pass exactly as he said it would. Who can thwart an almighty God? Nobody can.

We were told to watch. I'm watching and I'm getting an eyefull as I do it. I see the coming together of everything foretold to happen in our days. I suspect that our master has allowed things to progress this far for a reason, now is the time....When you read the new age propaganda, they admit that they have tried many times before to bring us to this place, and each time they were thwarted. This time, they've brought their plan to within striking distance of kick off. They've done this because they have been allowed to do this. Our Lord always has been, and always will be in control of the where, when and how things go down on the world timeline.

Open your eyes and watch so you can see. Ask the Lord to see things as he sees them. Ask him for wisdom that you may understand things according to his understanding. Ask him to give you ears that hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches TODAY....time is short.

grace and peace
